ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has launched its new Savage A40 PAPR with Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) technology.

Welding fumes and particulates are a concern when working with some cored wires and in confined or poorly ventilated spaces, as well as for protecting operators from hexavalent chromium fumes, which are generated from stainless steel, chrome alloys and chrome-coated metals.

The Savage A40 PAPR has three settings that adjust airflow between 170 and 230 l/min. to fit environment and application. It operates at 70 dB and features a high-capacity, lithium-ion rechargeable battery that offers up to eight hours of performance between charges.

“Savage A40 PAPR has a two-stage replaceable filtration cartridge that meets NIOSH certification and removes 99.9 percent of airborne particles,” says Kevin Beckerdite, Global Product Manager – PPE, ESAB. “As an extra measure of safety, we added visual and audible alarms to signal low airflow.”

The Savage A40 PAPR offers a 3.93- x 1.96-in. viewing area for a wider field of vision. Its 1/1/1/2 optical-class lens features ESAB’s ultra-clear true-color technology for increased weld pool clarity and enhanced definition. Additional features include four light sensors, providing a high response, especially when welding out-of-position, and 9-13 shade knob.

ERP in the cloud

Cloud computing continues to transform the ERP landscape

By Andrew Brooks

In the early days of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, one of the main complaints customers had was that the sheer scale and complexity of the software made implementation difficult and error-prone. Early failure rates were high. And small to mid-sized enterprises were left out; these costly, massive, one-size fits-all solutions were beyond the reach of all but the largest customers.
